I love this series!
I have said it before and I will say it again. This show has promise and the chemistry is great. Now that I have said that the show will now be canceled. Why do all the good new shows die when the crappy old shows live on! This show has good writing, acting, and characters. There is no weak link in the characters. Castle is a magnificent show and I hope that people give it a chance. I would hate for this to become another New Amsterdam or Dresden Files. Canceled before it's time. Please give this a chance ABC. I'm a College student and I can't watch it when it comes on Monday night but I watch it online or Tivo when I miss it. Just keep the good stuff coming.
The Dark Knight (2008)
The Dark Knight
I loved Batman Begins. It was my favorite Comic book movie, because of how closely it stuck to the origins and how well the script worked. I thought that Christian Bale was the best Batman there has ever been. I see now how low they set the bar with the first movie.
When Heath Ledger was announced as the Joker, I didn't know what to think. I had never really watched his movies. But when the trailer came out for the movie and I saw the first glimpses of him, I was shocked and excited. I knew then that the movie was going to be amazing. I annoyed my family with my constant talking about the Dark Knight.
I like to know a lot about movies so I checked my sites for news. And then I heard that Aaron Eckhart was cast as Harvey Dent. I went into overdrive with my anticipation for the movie. It was all I could do to keep from talking about it every waking moment. Now I'm not one of those people who dresses up like the characters from the movie. But I was excited none the less.
I've seen the movie four times. Three in conventional theaters and once in I-MAX. I loved it each time more than the last. The acting is superb, the story phenomenal, the dialog was some of the best I have ever heard. It can be said that this could be a really good set up for the next one, or they could stop right here and people would still be satisfied. I have to agree. I would love another Batman pic following this theme. But if they decide not to I will not be disappointed. The movie works on so many different levels. There is not a plot hole in the movie. Go see the movie if you haven't already. And if you have see it again. This movie is #1 in my book.
Iron Man (2008)
This movie just blew the comic book genre out of the water. I cried when he suited up in the Mark II. It was beautiful, just so beautiful. It was the first ever live action comic book. If you paused the film it would be a frame from a comic book. It was masterful. My favorite part of the movie was...the entire movie. I loved the humor.
I can't even begin to praise everyone who worked on the movie. The writing, the plot, the acting, the action- superb. Everyone was perfectly cast in their respective roles and no one was a weak link in the story or acting or being likable. An unparalleled origin story. In the words of Stan Lee. Nuff said.
Definitely, Maybe (2008)
I heard about this movie almost a year before it came out. I'm a big Ryan Reynolds fan. I wondered if the movie would ever come out and then I heard it was going to be released on V-day. "YES!" I thought "finally". Then the girl I went to see the movie with was five minutes late so that meant that I missed the set up to the movie. But the movie was utterly enjoyable just the same.
I like the idea of mysterious romantic comedy. Where we don't quite know who the mother is. But it is pretty clear who he wants to be with. And you know that's enough. The story was well crafted, the players were phenomenal, and the experience unforgettable. I really enjoyed this movie because, well, it's the guys point of view. All "chick flicks" are from the woman's point of view, it degrades the man in most cases except for "the one" that the girl is meant to be with but he does something to tick her off so therefore all men are scum. In this, yes we address the issue of men are scum, but we move into the unfamiliar territory of men and their emotions. We don't want women to know that we have a side like that but it is there just the same.
Oh! Whoops! I loved the interplay between Ryan and his on-screen daughter. Where he would go off into something that he should be changing and then realizes it is much to late to go back, so he does what any normal parent would do. He lies. He lies his butt off to dig himself out of the hole he is burying himself in.
The end of the movie is good to... but I won't go into that here. See the movie when you can. I think you'll enjoy it.
Coolest freak show out their.
I have never been one who enjoys the supernatural genre. But this show has a certain grace about it. The brothers are perfectly cast in their roles. Jensen Ackles is hilarious as Dean Winchester, and Jared Padalecki is good for the more dramatic portion of the show. The writing is phenomenal with story after story of good plots and arcs. It's hard to say what I like most about the show. But I guess it's because they aren't trying to be another run of the mill freak show. Buffy was always painful, but not quite as bad as Charmed. I can't say that X-files was bad, I just never got into it. My point is, this is a great show and I know you'll enjoy it when you give it a chance.
New Amsterdam (2008)
Strong start and staying that way.
While it's not my favorite show out there it is quickly becoming one of the must see on my list. The story may be an old one but then again there are only thirty-six basic plots and how you twist and mesh them is how you tell if something is great.
We have the possibility for a love triangle. Those are getting really old, but since this is a new series and we have no idea who these people are, it works.
We have an immortal who wants to die, as some others have said, very Highlander. But since there isn't anyone running around with swords chopping heads off. And also he can have children. I don't think it resembles that to much.
And a cop show. Nuf said.
Now lets look at every other show out there. Do we like cop shows? Hhmmmm. Let's see we have three CSI's, three Law & Order's, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Without a Trace, Cold Case... Yeah, I think that we like crime shows. Immortals? Not to many shows out there with Immortals... so kudos to them. Love triangles? I don't like them personally but as I said before. This is a new show with new people, I'll deal. And besides they haven't even gone into the love triangle so I'll live.
I hope that this show gets a good run. Maybe five seasons, anymore than that and it might get tired. But this is an amazing show and I hope I've said as much. Give the show a try, it's magic.
Surpassed all my expectations.
I sat down in a semi-crowded theater, the lights went down and one of the first trailers was for a little romantic-comedy called 'Serendipity'. Being a boy of ten at the time of the trailer's release, I did not say aloud my wish to see this movie. But I desperately wanted too.
Due to circumstances beyond my control I have had to grow up slightly faster than other people my age. Which may attribute to my sense of loneliness when it comes to the opposite sex. But when I get down hearted or depressed, all I have to do is watch this movie. It is the best story to tell you that it will all work out in the end.
They went boldly where no show had gone before.
I was never much of a Trekie, when I was younger sure I watched TNG reruns but I never really got into them. DS9 was a little too religious for my family, not a bad show just... too much. My family changed Television servers so we lost Voyager, we got it back in the last season and I liked that. I guess the reason that I liked Enterprise more than the rest was because it was the first Star Trek show that I watched from the beginning. I thought that the characters were intriguing, the premise was ingenious the writing was superb, and the acting was good too.
But don't get me wrong the show did have it's faults. Season three was a fiasco. It just got too drawn out, the best episodes were the stand alone episodes. Season four got back to the good stuff. And although I hated waiting, the three part episodes were great. Another fault of the show was the lack of character driven episodes. Don't get me wrong they had some but they were all about the same four people. Archer, T'Pol, Phlox, and Tucker.
Admittiedly they were the best the show had to offer but still, if they had given us intriguing stories about the others it would have, not only given us a reason to like their character more, but it would also have given them more to write about for the show. (Making sure another season Three would never happen again.)
That is really the only bad things I have to say about the show, I just wish it could have ran a little longer.
The Little Mermaid (1989)
Why can't we have more of this?
This is such a wonderful story. I love this movie. I remember watching the movie when I was younger and laughing at the prate falls and other obvious funny moments. It wasn't until recently that I noticed all, well most, of the subtle lines of dialog and lyrics. To this day Under the Sea is my favorite song for the lyrics. It is just perfect! (As a matter of fact I'm listening to it as I write this.)
With most Disney movies the songs are just there for fun, but with this, they help move the story along. Think about it. Bear Nessecities, what did that accomplish, except take up a couple of minutes. But if you listen to the songs of The Little Mermaid, they have something to offer the story. Just look at Kiss the Girl.
Man I wish more movies could be like this.
Seeing is believing.
I was blessed to be eleven when this movie came out. Because that only enhanced the experience for me. I was seeing it as if I could be at that school doing that stuff. Speaking of school, when I went to see the movie someone at the theater was taken out of school to see this movie by his mother! She went and got him from school and went to see the movie. How cool is that! The movie stuck surprisingly close to the original story. I remember reading the book before going into the theater on opening day. Their were a few things that were different but they were so minor that I didn't notice. Everybody was perfect in their roles. Alan Rickman was simply dripping evil as Severus Snape. It's probably the best introductory movie out there. And six years later it's still pretty darn cool.
